Thread Details

Has anyone heard of, or had experience with My Technology Voice? I got an invite during a survey which stated:

"You may recall that a requirement for membership in this community was your willingness to install software on your computer. It is now time to download and install that software. To thank you for being a participant in this exclusive panel, you will be entered automatically each month in our prize drawings for $100, $150, $250 or $350.

As a reminder, this software is intended to better help us understand people’s habits when they use their computers. This information will help technology companies develop products and services that better suit your needs.

The software will send information back to Synovate, and you may terminate your participation and uninstall the program software at any time. The information collected will include your behavior, installed applications and time spent on them, your mouse clicks and domain names of web addresses you visit.

We will not intentionally collect your name, email address or other personally identifiable information, and we have configured filters to prevent the software from collecting such personally identifiable information.

As a reminder, you must choose “yes” and install the software if you wish to participate in the My Technology Voice community. "


I will probably not install this, as I don't like to install random software on my computer, however I just wanted to check in and see if anyone has participated with this panel?

I somehow ended up on this same survey today ... very leery about installing this software on my computer. And seeing how I can't find anyone who has participated in this either, I have to pass too!

I'm in the panel but I don't think it's worth it. It's all sweeps. Luckily the surveys are pretty short. But the chances of winning are probably really small.

Thanks for letting us know. I was filling out the survey now, but like everyone else, I don't like installing monitoring software like this... and $20 over 3mos is not all that great.

Anything to do with Synovate, My Technology Voice and Vision Critical (all the same scamming entity) is a complete fraud. Especially if you do install their monitoring software. They hope that you forget about it being on the computer; then when you go to sign into their website to check on your "rewards", they tell you that you removed yourself from their panels. So basically they gather information and dirt on you, and then make up some excuse as to why they won't compensate you. They are not to be trust or believed.

I think Synovate in general is a decent company. Not the best pay or PTs, but I like 'em.

Not that bad. I did get $20 from them by installing software. Vision Critical does a lot of surveys and again they are not that bad. They do a lot of the tech surveys, Springboard etc. So I made a couple of hundred altogether, so no it's not a scam company. And do telephone and online FGs as well, if you're lucky to get them.

I just got an email from them saying I won $150. I have an attachment I have to print, fill out, scan to my comp and email to them and they will supposedly send me a check within 4 weeks. I hope it's legit. I could really use the money!
